Plain Loaf

My new venture in baking, bake a Loaf !!!
Two times of failures, 3rd time I able to enjoyed home baked loaf.
Also Thanks to my new Rooster timer to watch out bread dough resting time.

-Dough rise about 90% full

-Hot from the oven

-After removed from the pullman tin

- Yummy!! home baked loaf slices

I was referring to Kitchen Corner's recipe, mine one not as perfect as like her, but the bread is very soft and moist, worth to use hand to knead the dough. I have to make adjustment to her recipe due to the size of my pullman tin.

Thanks to Kitchen Corner sharing this lovely recipe.

ai wei said...

lovely loaf!!!
i awn i wan!
may i know what kind of mixer are you using???
i tried to make buns but ended up it turned hard the next day...

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

A full-time housefly, my oven is kind of Microwave Oven cum Conventional type.

Anncoo, I feel when come to making bread, better use hand to knead, I suspected the first two times of failure was due to I use food processor to knead the dough.

Rachel, 100% using hand knead..

Colin, ya, I love everything with Rooster. This morning the bread still wet and moist, good recipe to keep.

LCOM, Thanks.

Reanaclaire, Thanks for your nice words.

SuLianMummy, Thank you.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Ai Wei,I dont use any mixer, I use hand to knead the dough, try out this recipe, today I tried the loaf, it still wet and moist. If you like to do sweet bun, you may increase the sugar in this recipe.

Sonia, the aroma of homemade bread is such a wonderful smell. Warm out of the oven, I can not imagine anything better. Your loaf of bread looks light and perfect! What a great job!

I just bought a small pullman pan too. Your bread looks very soft and fluffy! The smell of yeast while baking must be so nice :).

Hi Sonia, there is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking or baking for the people she loves.
And the dish called, 'housewife dish' is always the best as it has the ingredient called 'love'

You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, Lee.

Petite, quickly try it.

Uncle Lee, thanks for dropping by.

Felvinc, ya lor, the two failed attempted partly due to the food processor, to small unit, can't handle heavy dough kneading. I feel use hand to knead, better control..
